3434 U.S. Government Films. Bulletin, 1951, No. 21
Reid, Seerley; Wilkins, Virginia
Office of Education, Federal Security Agency
The United States Office of Education, as part of its responsibility to furnish American schools and colleges with information about the educational materials and services of the Federal Government, initiated in the fall of 1949 a project calling for the periodic compilation of information about the films of U.S. Government agencies and the subsequent publication of a catalog, with supplements and revisions as needed, of those films which are available for public use in the United States. In February 1950 the Bureau of the Budget, by direction of the President, issued a circular to the heads of all the executive departments and establishments of the Federal Government calling their attention to the preparation of such a catalog and requesting that certain basic information about their films be furnished by the Office of Education. This catalog lists and describes more than 3,000 films of the United States Government which are available for public use within the United States. While the Office of Education, Federal Security Agency, has prepared this catalog primarily for the use of schools and colleges, its value to all users and potential users of U.S. Government films is clearly evident. That value is particularly important today in the national defense programs. (Contains 1 footnote.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
